There are two primary types of industrial washers - high and medium spin. High spin washers have an extraction force of 450G, medium spin washers have an extraction force of 200G. The extraction force determines how much water is removed at the final spin and therefore affects the drying time as well as energy usage when items are tumble dried. For laundry businesses, it is essential to understand the difference between high spin and medium spin industrial washers to ensure that you purchase the correct machines for your application.
High Spin vs Medium Spin Industrial Washers
To determine which option is best, it first helps to know the mechanical difference of these industrial washers, and its affect.
Electrolux High Spin Industrial Washer
This washer has its own suspension system. It is therefore free-standing and able to be mounted on any floor level. Due to the suspension system, the washer has a 450G extraction force during the final spin, which results in 50% residual moisture after the final spin. This, in turn, results in less drying time and greater energy savings.
Electrolux Medium Spin Industrial Washer
This washer doesn’t have a suspension system. It is therefore required to be chemically anchored to a concrete plinth that is reinforced to a 300mm thick floor slab. This washer has a 200G extraction force during the final spin, which results in 60% residual moisture after the final spin. This results in a longer drying time.
As any laundry business owner knows, efficiency is essential to process large volumes of washing. High spin washers offer the most efficient option for both resources and energy savings. Due to the fact that they are free-standing, they require less site preparation.
Electrolux industrial equipment is made with Swedish resource-saving technology, making it the most resource-efficient brand in the industry. MEGA washers offer water-saving technology and internal heating elements to disinfect and sanitise with every wash.
